Photographer's Guide to Resolution and Print Size

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp)

You are now the proud owner of both a film scanner or a digital camera and an inkjet printer. But may have wondered what is the best resolution -or pixel density- of a digitized image to allow for the production of a good print in a given size. Read more...

Nikon F6: First Look

Jeremy Bourassa (Balls007)

Well, just got back from a show in Ottawa where Nikon representatives let me play with an F6! I've heard some mumbling about people thinking this is a digital based body and people wondering if it was worth it. Answer yes its digital based and yes it is worth it. Read more...

Which image format - JPEG, TIFF, or RAW?

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

I just bought a new digital camera! I see that my new digital delight can take images in several different formats. There’s JPEG mode, TIFF mode, or even a mode called RAW. Is one better than the other? What differences will I see in the final images between the three formats? Which will it be, JPEG, TIFF, or RAW? Read more...

Shooting an air show with your Nikon DSLR

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

With the powerful, fast, and flexible Multi-CAM 2000 autofocus module found in the Nikon D2x/D2Hs cameras, air shows are quite popular as subjects. Like shooting almost any high speed subject, a fast camera/lens combo is required. Don't we all enjoy airplanes and wish that we could fly like the birds? For many of us, photographing high speed planes is a great thrill, and puts us close to the aviation we love. Read more...

Frequently Asked Questions on what film to use

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp)

Once again, this is one of the most common questions we see at photography forums. Both by beginners and even advanced amateurs. It is not easy to keep up with all the film offerings, even now. Yet, infrequently there is a site that offers a thorough, easy-to-follow, complete guide to select among the more than 115 possible choices we fortunately still have for 35 mm photography. This is our contribution in that direction in the hope it proves itself useful to fellow Nikonians. Read more...

The Nikon Multi Cam 1000 AF Module

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

The Nikon D200 is proving to be one of the most popular digital SLR cameras ever produced by Nikon, and for good reason. Within the Nikon D200’s smaller-sized body lives the heart of a true professional camera. Since it contains most of the feature sets of Nikons costing thousands more, the Nikon D200 is a complex and effective image maker as long as you understand the technology that makes it work.

Recording Voice Memos with your Nikon camera

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

For many years I carried a small notebook with me so that I could write down details about important shots. I’d record the aperture, shutter speed, and such, and then write about the subject. Later, I’d attach a small label to my slides with extended captions based on the notes I’d taken. If I failed to take notes, well, it was much harder to remember exposure and subject information later. Read more...

NIKON D2X - Using the Shooting and Custom Banks

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

The Nikon D2x is a chameleon! It’s at least four cameras in one, and can change on the fly. Using the Shooting & Custom Banks, your D2x can change from the most professional of pro cameras to a snapshooter camera, all with just a few button presses. Read more...

Nikon D2X - Exposure Bracketing

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

With digital photography you can see the results of your exposures right away. But, since the image viewing LCD is backlit, your images may appear a bit brighter than they really are. You can use the histogram to make sure your exposures are accurate, or you can be even safer with exposure bracketing. Read more...

Nikon D2H Review

Victor Newman (vfnewman)

With the big announcement from Nikon heralding the D2H, we would naturally want to test one. Given that one of the primary markets for this new marvel is sports photography, we went in search of some fast-moving action to try it out. Read more...

NIKON D2X - Using the White Balance Controls

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

Back in the good old days, we’d buy a roll of tungsten balanced film to shoot under the orange-colored light of indoor bulbs. Or, we’d buy a fluorescent filter to correct for the greenish light of a florescent bulb. If it was an overcast day, or we were shooting in the shade, we might add an A2 Nikon filter to warm things up a bit. Read more...

Nikon D2x - Doing a Slideshow

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

=- \0

The monitor on the back of the Nikon D2x camera is big and sharp enough to watch a movie on if there were a DVD slot on the D2x. It's a shame to waste that beautiful monitor by not using it often. With the massive battery capacity of the D2x, it won't hurt to use it whenever you'd like. Read more...

Nikon F6 Review: First Reflections

Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs)

I am an avid (and some may say rabid ;)) F5 user. For the last five years, I have used the F5 a lot and never before has a camera meant as much to me as this excellent piece of machinery. I fell in love with the F5. Actually, my love affair turned into a triangle drama, me and two F5's. Never before have I have been able to take photographs so well metered, to reach such a level of excellence in achieving what my mind-eye had captured. Read more...
